Sound and Video for a Philippino Church with a Simultaneous Interpretation System

We were required to provide a simultaneous interpreting system. An operator in an adjoining room is able to interpret live via a desk-mounted gooseneck microphone and can listen to the proceedings for long periods in comfort with quality Sennheiser headphones.

The control of audio is provided via a high quality Allen & Heath Mix Wizard desk. There is enough room to enable a separate operator and translator to sit at the desk if needed. Operators transmit the translated audio feed via infra-red transmitters to people with neck-worn receivers in the congregation.

Compact loudspeakers with subwoofers provide excellent quality sound reproduction. We also fitted LED display units for showing clear hymn numbers to the congregation. These are controlled with a simple remote control device to program the displays as needed.
